Alexander Kristoff raised his arms in triumph after 185.9 kilometres in Leuggern at the GP Canton d’Argovie Gippingen.
The Norwegian won in his comeback to racing after his victory in the general classification at the Tour of Norway, beating Andrea Pasqualon in a rapid sprint finish.

Kristoff said after the victory: “Today I felt good and I wanted to repay the good work done by the team to control the breakaway.
They gae me good support in the run to the finish but I still found myself a little boxed-in for the sprint. : I was in about fifteenth position, other guys jostled ahead of me but I had the strength to go past them on the line.
I am very happy with the win, and look forward to benefitting from the hard work of my teammates for more opportunities at the Tour du Suisse “
